Always at least a one week vacation hangover of worthlessness.

It took me 3 weeks to recover from 4/18.

Deloitte moms, I need your guidance. For some reason, someone (not sure which team) has marked my maternity leave (LOA) starting next week on DTE and I can’t update it to show PTO. I have repeatedly told the Leaves team and MetLife that I’m not starting LOA until the baby comes (due date 10/31, no baby yet). Whom do I contact to fix the DTE issue? If this happened to you, what did you do?

I hear by 40 you should have tripled your salary but that's seems a lot especially for a first gen Latino who parent immigrated here poor. Thanks in advance!
